Flute making - Camden Art Centre

Join us for an afternoon workshop led by Jan Hendrickse to make a flute.

Jan will guide participants through making their own flute using basic hand tools and materials. The workshop will culminate in music-making and experimenting together with what the flutes can do.

Jan Hendrickse is an artist whose practice encompasses composition, sound art, installations and improvisation. As a performing flutist, he has an extended vocabulary of techniques based not just on western musical systems, but also on his research into woodwind traditions around the world.

Please note: This workshop will involve the use of sharp tools.

The Artist

The Artist

Jan Hendrickse is an artist with a diverse practice encompassing composition, sound art and improvisation. His work is concerned with exploring the impact of sound on physiological and psychological states, and the extent to which these effects are mediated by conscious attention and interaction. He studied flute at the Royal College of Music followed by a post-graduate course at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where he now teaches on the MA in Leadership. He has also run participatory and collaborative projects for many organisations including the Barbican Centre, the Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, BBC Proms and Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. He is a specialist in traditional wind instruments, and features as a soloist on many Hollywood film scores including ‘Apocalypto’, ‘The Golden Compass’, ‘Lord of the Rings’, and ‘The Passion of the Christ’. He has travelled around Central Asia as the presenter of the BBC web-based interactive journey ‘The Musical Nomad’ and has worked on collaborative projects in Africa, South East Asia and the Middle East. www.janhendrickse.com
